Frozen Clinamen is serie of works by Failure Circle (a solo project of Kecap Tuyul) started on autumn 2017. It follows a simple method inspired by the the possibilities of his no-input mixer set-up (and sometimes other modular set-ups) and the will to use a limited sound material in a posteriori compositions : all the sounds included in these works are recordings of moments that feature no human intervention. Frozen Clinamen #3 was recorded and mixed between september 2017 and march 2018. Sound material on track 1 generated by only no-input mixer on track 1, and only semi-modular analog synthesizer on track 2.
Methodology step (1) Tweaking the set-up until it produces some seemingly autonomously self-sustained sound sequences. step (2) Stopping tweaking, then recording for at least 20 minutes without any intervention on the set-up. step (3) Repeating steps (1) & (2) several times. step (4) Using the generated sounds as only source in a posteriori compositions. The only variations used while mixing are equalization, panoramics and volume levels. step (5) play it at low/high volume with open/closed window while complety asleep / fully conscious.
